Great service, bright and clean cafe, beautiful sea views and well mannered staff, would definitely advise this place for visitors or people who want a break. Will be coming back in summer and next year to stay again.

We ate in the cafe. The decor was bright and clean with good music in the background. The setting on the sea front is excellent. Our order was taken promptly and politely. Unlike many other places we were not constantly asked by staff if our meal was alright. If only they had! We had the advertised special of home made... More

Great choice of food in the café, cannot comment on the hotel itself. Great service by youngster with excellent customer service and manners. BLT was excellent. Very friendly place, worth a visit - right on the sea front (south side)

We stayed in the ivy house beach comber cottage, the linen and towels were clean and we'll presented. The kitchen was very poor, we couldn't get the cooker to work ("stop" just appeared when turned on) on arriving I had told the owner we were awaiting an asda delivery for tea. All the food we bought went to waste, bumped... More

The food is lovely and the staff are helpful and friendly. The price is a little steep but you do get what you pay for. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who has some brass. The setting is almost perfect and the speed of service is great.

My husband and I had a meal here on Good Friday along with our two grandchildren aged 5 and 2 and I find it really annoying when the children's meals are cheap sausage and cheap fish fingers, our meals were lovely, shame they don't serve the same quality to children.

Random visit because we were hungry. Turns out to be a really nice place. Whether it's lunch, tea, or a snack that you need they have something on the menu for it. Nice specials too. I had the pastrami burger as a special, couldn't have asked for more. Nice coffees, alcoholic drinks etc. Would recommend.

My partner and I stopped at this hotel and was surprised at the size of the rooms and the value for money .We were greeted warmly and the views were amazing being so close to the front. The pictures definitely don't do the rooms justice, bathroom was like heaven !! The only down side is that being a younger couple... More

Returned from a long weekend at the Ivy House. Stunning location, the room and view quite fabulous. Breakfast to die for and the restaurant had a great menu and was good value for money. The staff were lovely, nothing was too much trouble and they always stopped by to say hello and ask how our break was going. Cannot recommend... More
